Earnest, 1LT George Reid

The President of the United States of America takes pleasure in presenting the Bronze Star Medal with Combat "V" to First Lieutenant George Reid Earnest (MCSN: 0-49337), United States Marine Corps, for heroic achievement as a Rifle Platoon Commander of Company G, Third Battalion, Seventh Marines, First Marine Division (Reinforced), in action against enemy aggressor forces in Korea, on 5 November 1950. When his platoon and the company command group were suddenly subjected to intense hostile small-arms, machine-gun and mortar fire, First Lieutenant Earnest quickly analyzed the situation, ordered his men to covered positions and moved forward through the advance elements, placing men and weapons in advantageous firing positions. Observing the location of enemy weapons during the action, he repeatedly traversed the line, pointing out targets for the mortars and personally supervising the evacuation of casualties. By his inspiring leadership, aggressive determination and unwavering devotion to duty in the face of grave personal risk, First Lieutenant Earnest contributed materially to the successful repulse of the hostile assault and thereby upheld the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service. (First Lieutenant Earnest is authorized to wear the Combat "V".)

Easterday, CPL Carlos M. (24ID)

By direction of the President, Corporal Carlos M. Easterday, US52059910, Infantry, U.S. Army, a member of Company E, 19th Infantry Regiment, 24th Infantry Division, is awarded the Bronze Star Medal with V device for heroic action near Kumsong, Korea, on 8 August 1951. His platoon had the mission of taking and securing Objective N, a steep wooded hill held by fanatical enemy forces. Corporal Easterday’s squad, the reserve unit in the attack, was then committed. The men in the squad went around the flank of the platoon and made their way toward the top of the objective. They had nearly worked their way to the crest of the hill when they were pinned down by a murderous hail of fire from two enemy automatic weapons positions. Since the only route of withdrawal was across an exposed area, the squad was trapped. Private Easterday immediately moved up to the front of his comrades and, with complete disregard for his personal safety, advanced through the devastating enemy fire. Approaching the first enemy position, he threw two hand grenades into it, killing the occupant. He then charged the other automatic weapons position and, with grenades and rifle fire, killed the two enemy soldiers in it. His fearless action relieved the pressure off the pinned-down platoon and the reserve squad, enabling them to successfully overrun and capture the objective. Corporal Easterday’s heroic action, outstanding performance of duty and aggressive initiative contributed immeasurably to the success of his [platoon’s] mission and reflect the greatest credit on himself and the U.S. Infantry. Entered service from Pleasant City, Ohio. (24th Div GO 707, 1 Nov 1951)

Ebbrecht, CPL Charles W. (25ID) (GOS 124 - 8 September 1950)

Corporal Charles W. Ebbrecht, RA12303764, Infantry, Company A, 27th Infantry, United States Army.  On 2 August 1950 near Chindong-ni, Korea, Corporal Ebbrecht and three other enlisted men discovered a medium tank, the turret of which had been damaged by an enemy anti-tank gun.  Although he was unfamiliar with the operation of a tank, Corporal Ebbrecht returned it to the battalion area.  When the enemy attacked the following morning, Corporal Ebbrecht, acting as 76mm gunner, with three others as crewmen, moved the tank into position and directed fire on the attacking forces, notwithstanding the hazard of an open turret.  When the 76mm gun jammed, the crew moved the tank around the perimeter directing 30 and 50 calibre machine gun fire on the enemy until all ammunition had been expended.  While seeking more ammunition, he had to abandon the tank when the turret jammed and the tank was set afire.  By their bold and ingenious actions, Corporal Ebbrecht and his crew had destroyed two hostile machine gun positions and inflicted numerous casualties on the enemy.  The resourcefulness, initiative and courage displayed by Corporal Ebbrecht reflect the highest credit on himself and the military service.  Entered the military service from New York.

He then directed the fire of his section upon an enemy machine gun and succeeded in bringing extremely accurate fire upon the enemy position. Supplementing his mortar fire with grenades, he assaulted the enemy position, inflicting a number of casualties and forcing the enemy to withdraw.
